  1. A CubeSat-Compatible Neutral Wind Sensor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121066

    ABSTRACT: CubeSats provide a new, low-cost platform for space weather missions. They enable new mission paradigms, such as the ability to perform multiple measurements of the same physical phenomena globally from several satellites, in contrast to high-accuracy measurements of multiple phenomena on the same spacecraft. Flight-tested neutral wind sensors must be miniaturized to fit into these mu ...

  2. A Low-Cost, High-Performance Colloidal Quantum Dot LWIR FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: CBD13105

    The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wavelength infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) and show its feasibility when used in a camera system and a hyperspectral imaging system. Phase I results cumulated in the first-ever synthesis of photoresponsive LWIR CQDs and CQD-based photodetectors at the single device level operating at room temperat ...

  3. A Miniature Autoinjector for Multicomponent Drugs and Vaccines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13106

    Chemical, biological, or toxin attacks in military and civilian settings are a serious and growing concern. Standard first aid for exposure to some chemical warfare agents and toxins includes the immediate administration of relevant antidotes using an autoinjector. When an attack occurs, pre-filled autoinjectors must be immediately available and thus highly portable, and they must be suitable fo ...

  4. An Adaptive-Configuration Control System for Aircraft Thermal and Energy Management System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF131165

    ABSTRACT: Hybrid technologies and adaptive resource management can significantly enhance the capability and range of next-generation aircraft. To implement this strategy, we propose to develop a control system to configure the Adaptive Power and Thermal Management System (APTMS) based on the subsequent flight profile to enable the APTMS to use the most appropriate cooling system(s), heat sink(s) ...

  5. A Novel High-Conductance Thermal Interface for Aerospace Electronics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF131077

    ABSTRACT: Current Separable Thermal Mechanical Interfaces (STMIs) found in advanced digital processing electronics are unable to efficiently remove dissipated heat, limiting performance far below their capability. The standard approach produces high contact resistance (~1.0C-in./W) with local variations in excess of 25%, severely limiting allowable electronic power levels. During this program, ...

  6. Antenna Design in PolyStrata for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Nuvotronics, LLC            Topic: AF131141

    ABSTRACT: There is the growing demand for user terminals for mobile satellite telecommunication (SATCOM) applications including K/Ka dual-band SATCOM for unmanned and manned aircraft platforms. Nuvotronics is pleased to propose a two-year SBIR program to the Air Force for the development of a fully-electronically steerable array capable of scanning beams from zenith to near the horizon to replace ...

  7. Cognitive Radio Spectrum Management and Waveform Adaptation for Advanced Wideband Space Communication Systems

    SBC: SHARED SPECTRUM COMPANY            Topic: AF11BT03

    ABSTRACT: Shared Spectrum Company (SSC) partners with Virginia Tech (VT) to develop resilient and agile space communication systems using innovative cognitive radio techniques. The objective of this STTR Phase II project is to develop anti-jamming capability using frequency agility provided by Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) technology for satellite communications (SATCOM) systems. The SSC team foc ...

  8. Compact and Integrated IMU for GPS Denied Navigation Using Fast-Light Gyroscopes and Accelerometers

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF112100

    ABSTRACT:For GPS denied navigation, there is a need for developing inertial measurement units (IMU), employing gyroscopes and accelerometers, with better accuracy and/or smaller volume and weight than the state of the art.Under Phase I, we have established the feasibility of realizing a superluminal ring laser gyroscope (SRLG) and a superluminal ring laser accelerometer (SRLA), based on diode-pump ...

  9. COMPUTATION OF AERODYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS AND NONLINEAR STABILITY DERIVATIVES OF A FIGHTER/ATTACK AIRCRAFT AT HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK

    SBC: VIGYAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN TACTICAL AIRCRAFT FLYING AT HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK ENCOUNTER VISCOUS SEPARATION, VORTEX FLOWS, VORTEX BREAKDOWN, UNSTEADY FLOW SITUATIONS AND THEIR EFFECTS ON THE LIFTING SURFACES DOWNSTREAM. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ANALYZE THESE FLOWS IN ORDER TO PREDICT THE STABILITY DERIVATIVES ACCURATELY AND ALSO IT IS HIGHLY DESIRABLE THAT IN THE METHODS PREDICTING THE STABILITY DERIVATIVE OF THESE AIRC ...

  10. Conformal, Light-Weight & Load-Bearing Antennas Based on Conductive Textile Threads

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: AF11BT13

    ABSTRACT: Low frequency antennas provide us with the most critical challenge in small UAVs due to the limited available real estate on the platform. The primary objective of our Phase I research was to fill a critical technology gap in small UAVs for low frequency communication and SIGINT applications. We carried out a very comprehensive Phase I research to develop light-weight, conformal volumet ...
